I am visiting Hanover, New Hampshire today. Home to Dartmouth College. And no longer home to Dartmouth Bookstore. Walking down Main Street, I was surprised to see the Dartmouth Bookstore was no more. Closed. An Ivy League college town without a bookstore selling new books?
A Google search revealed some very good news - A 2011 Dartmouth alumna plans to open Still North Books & Bar on the first floor of the same building in the fall of 2019.
Bookstores are magical places. Understood that in the Amazon era, a bookstore benefits by doing more than just selling books. It sounds like Still North Books & Bar has the right ideas in mind - serving food and drink, as well as hosting special events. I look forward to returning to Hanover when Still North Books is open.
